A guy walks into a bar...
From here the story could take many turns. A guy walks into a bar and meets the love of his life. A guy walks into a bar and finds no one else it there. When this guy is David Sedaris, the possibilities are endless, but the result is always the same: he will both delight you with twists of humor and intelligence and leave you deeply moved. In Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls, Sedaris remembers his father's dinnertime attire (shirtsleeves and underpants), his first colonoscopy (remarkably pleasant), and the time he considered buying the skeleton of a murdered Pygmy.
The common thread? Sedaris masterfully turns each episode into a love story: how it feels to be in a relationship where one loves and is loved over many years; what it means to be part of a family; and how it's possible, through all of life's absurdieties, to accept oneself. With Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls, David Sedaris shows once again why he has been described as 'a man who could capture your heart and lift your spirits while reading out the ingredients of a rice cake.'
